    Just started Syberia - I tried playing it when it came out years ago but it didn't click, I wasn't really into adventure games back then, I think. I like them more now. Basically, Syberia is a classic adventure game - you explore, you find stuff, you solve puzzles, you enjoy the story. If you like adventure games you will like this game, that's all I can say about it.

    Other than that? The usual suspects - Planetside 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Skyrim. Counter-Strike and Skyrim, I mean, it's Counter-Strike and Skyrim, not much left to say about those. Planetside 2 is...well, it's pretty much the most ridiculously ambitious first-person shooter on the market. It's what I imagined games in the future would be like playing stuff like ONS in UT2k4 or BF1942. I hate this game and I love this game. It has issues but at the end of the day there's nothing quite like it.

    Used to be addicted to Mario Kart until my Wii died :(
    Right now, I'm in a love/hate relationship with logoquiz…

    Just got Splatoon and I've been enjoying that. As far as "shooters" go, I'd rather this than CoD.

    Watching e3 right now, let's see if they have anything interesting coming up.

    For a while I was playing Path of Exile as my go to but they have a private beta out right now so the current game that's live for everybody is in a bit of a lull. You're able to purchase access to the beta or be lucky enough to be invited/win a free key to join but I'd rather just wait for the beta to end and play the finished product of their expansion.

    In the meantime I've been playing Diablo II (nostalgia to the max). I also play NHL 15 with a friend of mine whenever we get together.

    recently bought the 'tell Tale Collection' during Steam Summer Sale...my jaw dropped at how good of a story, and how well done 'Wolf Among Us' is.

    Blaze: lol every time I start an Elder Scroll game, that's the first thing I do, I guess I love being a thief

    little tip if you want to use this: get yourself a soul stealing enchantment that goes on a weapon, make iron daggers, buy all the petty soul gems that have souls in them that you can, enchant all the daggers you make, and then sell the enchanted daggers for more money that you spent . Good way to get some money, and your enchanting and blacksmithing up.

    I'm still playing Assassin's Creed Unity because I tend to take long breaks lol and just picked it up again last night, and 1886 I guess I'm in the middle of.

    Just bought Dragon Age Inquisition and Bloodborne so I'll probably start on those this weekend.

    I don't play much these days... but I did get Cities Skylines a while ago.
    My lovely city is a mess though. Think I need to make some major changes to fix those traffic jams. lol

    Besides that I mostly play Real Racing 3 on the iPad.
    It's good, you can play for a few minutes then you have to wait for a few hours for the cars to get repaired.
    Guess you're supposed to pay to get rid of those waiting times. But it suits me pretty good to take a break, play a bit, and then get back to whatever project I got going at the moment. :)

    Off topic... what do you think will happen with the movie? Will it be a Prince of Persia or will it actually do something at the box office. Could it ruin Fassbender's career?

    I don't know...it could certainly swing either way BUT at least they have a Fassbender rather than a Gyllenhaal, which puts them ahead. It all depends on whether they take it seriously and pen a good script or not.

    It's more like they're reliving someone else's experiences from the past.

    Right now I am playing Bio Shock Infinite. It is really awesome so far. It has really great graphics and epic story line. Plus all the Victorian and steampunkness is quite frankly amazing. I want to start Dishonored soon because the second one is coming out in couple of months.

    Slowly waiting for the Northern American release of Xenoblade Chronicles X and Fire Emblem Fates. In the meanwhile replaying some Wind Waker, and some classic Mario!
     
    Fuffy Baith: Mario!!! And I like Wind Waker too.

    I am playing Dragon's Age Inquisition. For the second time. 80 hours on my second play through and I think I am 60% done.
    Want to play Batman though
